    @Terallian
    (From the previous Newsletter)

    Tarulia's Interview:






    Terallian 's Interview:


    Who are you? Tell us a bit about you!
    Yo, well my name is Terallian, I'm 16 and a South Aussie and used to be a regular member on AoA back in the day. I'm a cosplayer and on rare occasions now, still a writer.

    How and when did you Join AoA?
    I joined AoA towards the later part of 2013, but didn't join the forums until the shift from SAO Project to Age of Aincrad. Helluva time at the start, hanging with Kuma, Bakita, Wowe, everyone...

    What is the origin of your username?
    The origin of my username is from SWTOR, when I had difficulty choosing a name for my new smuggler toon to play with some friends. Rolled around a few names and eventually settled on Terallian. Apparently it's one-of-a-kind, luckily.

    What's your favourite hobby?
    My favourite hobby would be listening to music, reading, playing games, writing or cosplaying (so generic, right?)

    What's your top 3 Anime?
    My top 3 anime would have to include Mekakucity Actors, Steins;gate and, of course, I'll just say K-On for my last one.

    What is your honest Opinion about AoA?
    My honest opinion on AoA is that it isn't going to happen, to be quite frank. Not trying to be salty, just honest. In my experience, it's followed a hype-up of one new, excellent developer who makes the majority of the content and then leaves (had this numerous times, but I guess it happens).

    Is there anything else you want to say?
    The only other thing I really want to say is... El. Psy. Congroo.


    What is your Story in the AoA Team?
    Oh, right, and my story in the AoA team. I applied as a writer and was rejected for my shoddy application (Jesus, it was bad), but after starting The Terafuwa Stories and getting into writing heavily, I applied again and got in. I think this was at the end of February, start of March? Either way, had a ball for a while working with Wowe and other developers fairly closely, lots of community projects (sad DnD never got off the ground ;-; ), but eventually left during the mass exodus of July (or June)? I then continued to work on Terafuwa for a while before some drama went down.

    Came back towards the end of 2014 and finished Terafuwa 2.0 by March 2015. Hoping to get Broken Record rolling (waiting for a few more applications, got some great ones coming from friends as well) so hopefully it works out. Will never be quite the same as Terafuwa though. That journey was a one of a kind. ;')

    Thanks for reading. (heart)

    it's 15$ but if you like the game I think it's a really good buy. I've played about 1000 hours of the game and i dont regret it and will probably play more.

    Yes, but Steam Sales may happen within 1 ~ 2 weeks, and usually CS:GO gets a huge discount.

    After the server crash some time ago there are still quite a few issues to be fixed. The blogs are one of them. We're trying to get things back to how they were as soon as possible.
